I bought this omamori at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo back in 2010. It’s special, to guard me against evil. Since then it has absorbed a lot of evil indeed and I plan to bring it back to the Meiji Shrine one day to be burnt and thus purified.
For now, I guess it will have to endure more evil to protect me. I have never opened it of course.
Resolution for next year is learning some more Japanese.
